A good journalist knows how to find the news and the stories that matter to readers. Page one news, science articles, travel reportages, depth interviews, infographics... It is no surprise that after 13 years of writing, I master many genres and have developed several specialisations. No matter if it's a newspaper, magazine, or website: by finding the right stories for each medium, I can make readers happy. And happy readers become loyal readers...

I develop content and concepts for online and print.

OpSmaak: a blog for chefs
If you are a chef, what would you like to read? Or see? We made a full-blown concept for Unilever Food Solutions, with movies, slide shows, interviews and snappy news items. With seasonal recipes and inspiring stories from chefs abroad. Because a chef's world is so much bigger than his cooker.
lifestyle blog Krëfel
We launched a new blog concept for Krëfel with a good content mix between must have and nice to have, must know and nice to know. With the spotlight on new designs and technologies. We also proposed an enrichment of their web shop with buyer's guides, and started up their Facebook. Once we set everything up in a user-friendly way, they were happy to run it themselves, augmenting traffic to their webshop.
crossmedia strategy fashion: Carmi
We already made a fashion magazine for the premium shoe&fashion brand Carmi and ran their Facebook. They asked us for a crossmedia strategy. We offered them an all-in plan containing emailmarketing, a difficult to resist Pinterest plan, a better focused Facebook strategy and a concept for a blog in addition to their webshop. Fashion rules!
Bridgestone: CEO blog
Tyre manufacturer Bridgestone relies on us to make their internal communication magazine. They wanted to communicate via internet with their personnel. We worked hard on a very original and strong solution: a CEO blog. Who doesn't want to know what the big boss is up to? Well, he lets you know on his blog. And sends you triggermails to keep you posted on who he's been talking to, which team he's proud of, what's inspiring him... It may inspire you!
